All You Need is Love

Hey hey! How’s everyone doin’?

Today was a low-key, but productive day for me – yay! haha I slept in (a little bit), and managed to be up, caffeinated, and finished with my morning errands by noon. I made an amaaazing cinnamon caramel latte this morning. Yum.Yum.Yum. I did some errands, as well…including a trip to the post office and a trip to Trader Joe’s.

I came away with a bunch of goodies from Trader Joe’s — mixed baby greens, feta, pom seeds, sprouts, broccoli slaw, blueberries, and some tomatoes. I’m on a salad kick (thanks to the cafe) – is it obvious?? haha

Sooo…what do you think I had for lunch? hahaha

Salad! *shock* I made a salad with mixed greens, broccoli slaw, sprouts, feta and pom seeds…all topped with balsamic.

Yum, yum, yummm. I also snuck a spoonful of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl after this sucker. haha

I slaved away at some reading (okay I didn’t slave — women’s history is quite interesting! haha), and then dinner ended up being meatless meatballs, veggie spaghetti sauce and some fresh halved grape tomatoes.

Gooood eats.

Putting food aside for a minute, I found it ironic to stumble across this article in Shape magazine today.

Why you ask? Well, the lovely Jenny just posted a blog today that totally echos this editorial. I think it’s so true…we all criticize ourselves too much! Not just critiques of physical traits but in general! We should love ourselves, flaws and all!! The article solely focuses on what you like about your body…but I think it should just be what you LOVE about yourself. Period. End of sentence.

  • Taking a page from Miss Jenny, what do YOU love about YOURSELF?!?
  • Why do you think it is sometimes so difficult to recognize our own positive attributes, but so easy to tear ourselves down over the tiniest details??

You all are gorrrgeous people — on the inside and the outside!! I love that I get to “hang out” with you ladies every day!! πŸ™‚

  1. Mmm cinnamon raisin swirl pb is my favorite πŸ™‚ I read jennys post earlier and it is amazing! I just love her! I love how determined I am, I am so driven and focused on my goals.

  2. i love my uniqueness…i don’t really know anyone who looks like me!

    and i think we are just programmed to be hard on ourselves, it is easy to look at other people and easily see the beauty in them πŸ™‚
